Watch Cornel West’s Course on W.E.B. Du Bois, the Great 20th Century Public Intellectual

A giant of 20th century scholarship, W.E.B. Du Bois’ career spanned six decades, two World Wars, and several waves of civil rights and decolonial movements; he saw the twentieth century with more clarity than perhaps anyone of his generation through the lens of “double consciousness”;  he wrote presciently about geopolitics, political economy, institutional racism, imperialism, and the culture and history of both black and white Americans; we find in nearly all of his work piercing obser...

Gillmor Gang: Something Goes Right

Here we sit in the valley of predespair, 2 weeks ahead of the election and God knows where we are in the pandemic. As my partner Tina says to me on this once glorious sunny day (the view formerly known as the Pacific Ocean has been replaced by the fog like a Zoom background) we seem to be better prepared for something to go wrong than right. We’ve learned how to stay socially distant, half-learned to wear a mask, unlearned how it might be a good idea to stay home and let things just happen. T...

Tyronn Lue’s track record makes him a fit as Clippers coach

No two situations are exactly alike, of course. But if Tyronn Lue’s tenure in Cleveland is any indication of what the Clippers can expect from their new head coach, it’s easy to see why they tabbed him to steer a talented roster that faces lofty expectations. He was the candidate who’s done it before – and done it successfully and swiftly. Smarting after blowing a 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference semifinals, the Clippers hope Lue – who has agreed to a five-year deal to coach the team – ...

Texas Governor Opened the Bars and Lone Star Republicans Still Hate Him

After a summer surge that devastated the state’s plans to cut back on restrictions, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has tried to put his state back on the reopening track. In late August, he hinted at new reopening plans being on the way before rolling out an executive order in September that boosted the capacity allowed in places like restaurants and shops. And last week Abbott took action on bars in the state, which he had ordered closed back in late June amid the surge, saying the venues could soon re...

It’s Time to Get Real About U.S. Interests in the South Caucasus

Coverage of the decades-long Armenia–Azerbaijan conflict often focuses on regional implications, repeating customary lines about potential tensions between Russia and Turkey and mentioning the proximity of Iran.

As of October 12, at least 500 Armenian soldiers have been killed in nonstop firefights along a 100-mile front (Azerbaijan does not release casualty information). Azerbaijan has unleashed...

Alexander: The Lakers’ 17th title is for all those who have come before

This one was for Kobe, of course, and for Gianna. A season had been dedicated to them, and so too should be a championship. But the historical import of this, the 17th NBA title in Lakers’ franchise history, demands that it also be for many others who have contributed along the path to 17, those who succeeded and especially those who fell short. For those who haven’t yet figured out the significance of 17, here’s a hint: They darned sure have noticed in Boston, and wherever else Celtics fans res...
